The following restrictions apply to all public access programming and bulletin board announcements. They may not contain:

*Note that this does not restrict programs that cover local businesses, to encourage awareness of local merchants and/or to encourage a “shop local” theme. Such programming should demonstrate a reasonable effort to be equitable in the topics/merchants who are covered. Channel users may not require compensation from individuals in exchange for programs or bulletin board items appearing on NP PATV.
